It looks like the LIVESTRONG wristband that I mentioned in a previous post has really taken off. I’m spotting the bright yellow wristband everywhere (including my own wrist). John Kerry was wearing one during a public appearance as he pointed toward a hopefully Bush-Presidency-free future. Tom Brokaw, in a spot on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, was also wearing one.
In the mid-nineties, it was the red AIDS ribbon. A few years ago, it was the pink pony from Polo (for breast cancer care and prevention). I guess right now, the fashion accessory for the fight against life-threatening diseases is the LIVESTRONG bracelet. If there’s one thing celebrities are really good at, it’s certainly starting a fashion trend and this one at least helps a good cause.
